CBD gummies helping with a good nights sleep!
I was recently in touch with a company called JustCBD, who sells a wide range of products including products for pets. I was offered the chance to pick out something to review and try out, it was hard narrowing it down to just one thing because plenty of the items seemed interesting such as the bath bombs. I ended up selected the Watermelon CDB gummies 500mg jar, the container comes with 24 gummy rings each with 24mg of CBD and it sells for $40 so it comes out to $1.66 per candy. One of my favorite candies to pick up on a road trip is peach/apple rings so I figured I would love these. The jar they came in came with a small warning that the product may cause drowsiness, so I decided to wait until the evening to try these out for the first time to prevent wanting to nap in the middle of the day.
These smell delicious, they smell like a mixture of watermelon and strawberries. The first day I tested these out I wasn't feeling 100%, I had a bit of a headache and my back had been giving me issues so I figured it was the perfect time to try it out. How did it taste? It did not have a strong watermelon flavor to it but I could tell that it was watermelon, although it did also have a little bit of a earthy flavor to them that I can't quite put my finger on, but it wasn't a horrible taste. Texture wise I did need to chew them up a bit more than your typical candy gummy ring but it wasn't a hassle to eat. I only ate one, depending on your weight, how products like these typically effect you, etc you might want two. After about 15 minutes I felt like my body was calming down and I didn't feel as icky as I had earlier in the day, and I felt like my muscles had relaxed a bit leaving my body feeling lighter and I noticed my head was no longer hurting like it was. I ate the ring just before my bedtime, so I relaxed and watched a bit of TV then I went to bed when I felt like I couldn't keep my eyes open any longer. I didn't stir a bunch in my sleep and I only woke up once to use the bathroom, otherwise I had a deep and peaceful sleep waking up feeling refreshed and energized in the morning from a good nights sleep. I also felt great the rest of the week. As for the anxiety portion of it, it helped my brain wind down instead of going a thousand miles a minute which is the big part of what lead to sleeping so well.
I decided to eat one earlier in the day to see how the effects were, the other two times I tried them out was shortly before bed so it was hard to judge exactly what all it did. I ate one shortly after I got home from work, it didn't make it to where I was too tired to do anything it just helped my body feel calm and relaxed. After dinner my husband went to work on a project of his, while the kids and I decided to relax on the sofa watching some TV. I ended up getting super comfortable and warm cuddled up on the sofa, and ended up falling asleep a bit earlier then intended (about 7pm) but I had a good nights sleep. If I needed to stay awake after eating one of these, I don't think I would have any issues with trying to stay awake, I simply became comfortable in my home after eating this so I ended up falling asleep. My iron levels tend to fluctuate which makes it to where things like aspirin work differently so I think eating just one makes me a little sleepier than it would to other people so I would try out one at first and maybe move to two if you don't notice a different in your sleep. Depending on what you are looking for this could be a daily use item, however for myself this is something I think I will keep for when I am feeling extra stressed or feel like I am heading towards an anxiety attack to help me stay calm, so this jar should last me quite some time. They also offer products to help with pain, lack of appetite and more.
